Center for Emerging Markets

In 2009 the Center for Emerging Markets (CEM) was established in response to the increasing importance of emerging markets in the global economy. CEM bundles comparative research on internationalization, innovation and economic development in emerging markets. It offers research, education and policy advice at the intersection of international business and economics.





The Center for Emerging Markets (CEM) is a specialized research unit within CBS. Our vision is to become an academic platform within Europe for research on the internationalization, innovation and economic development in emerging markets as well as the implications from these processes for advanced economies. The research is of comparative nature and not focused on a specific geographic region. We aim to deliver expertise at the level of the firm, industry, technology and the country.

CEM works towards implementing its vision by focusing on the following objectives:

  • We integrate CBS research activities on emerging markets, especially in the areas of the internationalization, innovation and economic development
  • We establish research projects that facilitate research-based teaching, policy advice and dissemination of expertise to the private sector and the wider public
  • We arrange workshops and conferences with international visibility and foster international mobility of students and academic staff
